The fuel facility at the Toronto Pearson International Airport is the largest airport jet fuel facility in Canada. More than two billion litres of jet fuel flow through the system annually.
Bulk jet fuel storage capacity, underground hydrant system fuelling, and gasoline and diesel storage and distribution facilities are all available at Toronto Pearson. The jet fuel infrastructure has expanded rapidly over the past several years to keep pace with increasing demand and the Greater Toronto Airports Authority’s passenger terminal development program. Most notable has been the construction of a new rail offloading storage and distribution facility.
Services at the airport are provided by the Canadian Fuel Consortia, and include facilities administration, into-plane fuelling and tank farm management. Jet fuel is received by pipeline, railcar or tanker truck, and is distributed to each aircraft gate through the underground hydrant system. Approximately 190,000 flights are fuelled annually at the airport.
